Homework Format:  Read the chapters assigned according to the schedule listed in the table below. To check your understanding of basic principles, you will have to go to the text book web site and take a multiple choice quiz for the specific chapter being studied. Once logged onto the web site click on “Student Resources”, then the specific chapter, and finally on “Multiple Choice Questions” in the left hand panel.

Submission Procedure:  You may take the quiz as many times as you want – just have the quiz graded - then use the browser “Back” button to retake the quiz. Submit your final trial by entering gatemail@hartford.edu in the “Instructors” e-mail box in the “E-Mail Results” table. Don’t forget to type in your name in the “E-Mail Results” table, check the “Instructor:” e-mail box, and use the “text” format. Be sure that the results are e-mailed before 12:00 p.m. (midnight) of the date listed on the homework syllabus below.

Working in Groups:     Working in groups is NOT permitted when taking the on-line quizzes. The quizzes must be completed by the individual without any assistance from others. Remember – it is UNETHICAL to present someone elses work as your own!

Please Note: Due dates for homework quizzes and labs will be adhered to strictly. Grades will be reduced by one letter grade for each day late! Homework quizzes and labs are considered late if submitted after 12:00 pm (midnight) on the date specified.
